Ever wonder why it’s easier to get people excited about football than saving our planet? You may be passionate about your cause, but ultimately success depends on our ability to inspire others. The narratives you tell yourself and others about why you do what you do, not only impact your performance, but also your personal flourishing. Likewise, our shared narratives impact our organizational and planetary flourishing. Learn how to identify where we fall along a continuum of sustainability motivation and the work you can do to take our culture to the next level.

Gabriel Grant’s research at Yale’s Center for Business and the Environment understanding the culture within organizations like New Belgium and Patagonia, combined with years of experience coaching purpose-led leaders through high-stakes conversations, gives him a unique window into the work you can do to cultivate a purpose led firm, community, family and life.
